New Play: Palm Tree Shadow, by Lulu James

Jason Sebacher ·

We are thrilled to announce the latest addition to our catalog, Palm Tree Shadow by the talented Lulu James. This compelling play dives deep into the complexities of friendship, self-discovery, and the transition from childhood to adulthood.

Synopsis: To celebrate their high school graduation, three friends decide to make lemonade out of their canceled senior trip by taking their first unchaperoned trip to the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida. However, secret fears and resentments simmer beneath the surface of their camaraderie: Dakota’s post-graduation anxiety, Calliope’s post-breakup woes, and Sage’s uneasiness with her burgeoning sexuality. Despite the closeness they shared in the past, none of these young women share their feelings, which drives a wedge into their friendship. The heat gets turned up when they encounter a pair of young men, and the harsh truths of the next phase of their lives bubble to the surface. Palm Tree Shadow explores the liminal space between childhood and adulthood—and what is left behind.

Lulu James masterfully captures the bittersweet essence of adolescence, making this play a must-read for anyone looking to bring a poignant and thought-provoking piece to their high school stage. The intricate dynamics between Dakota, Calliope, and Sage will resonate with students and audiences alike.

Don’t miss the opportunity to add Palm Tree Shadow to your repertoire and offer your students a play that challenges them to explore the depth of their own friendships and the inevitable journey of growing up.
